Abstract:

There has recently been considerable investigation in Artificial Intelligence of a class of control structures called production systems. Production systems provide one alternative for how to organize an intelligent system. This paper is concerned with the efficiency of implementation of production systems. If implemented straightforwardly according to their definition as is done in most initial and demonstration versions, they are quite expensive, especially for large systems. Thus, alternative implementations must be developed. In this paper the authors explore several schemes and give some experimental results.
